|About Jeff Fetty
Jeff has been forging hot iron for nearly 40 years and still finds every day at the forge a learning experience and an adventure.
"For me, the history of Blacksmithing as an art form is inspiring and rewarding. I am convinced that nature herself can be captured in this medium with remarkable accuracy."
--Jeff on his love of Blacksmithing
Jeff is also an accomplished photographer. Over the past decade, Jeff has been regularly traveling to his adoptive home of Mexico. While in Mexico, Jeff meets local blacksmiths and brings home hand-made tools to add to his extensive collection. He plans to publish a book on these tools.
"Today in Mexico, blacksmiths are regarded as core members of society, much like blacksmiths were here in the United States 100 to 150 years ago. To me, it is important to give acknowledgment and credit not only to these blacksmiths but to the tradition of blacksmithing."
--Jeff talking about Mexican blacksmithing
Here is a sample of some of Jeff's photographs from his Mexico travels.
